I’m done with what was due today. Now I am back to dissertating. My dissertation was due yesterday. I’m having problems with Chapter three.
But today’s work task was creating some spreadsheets showing, week by week, how many students sent in enrollment deposits, how many cancelled their deposits, and how that jibed with our actual fall enrollment. The admissions office runs reports like this, but their formulas only provide a net figure (deposits minus cancels). I’m the only one who is adept at doing a line-by-line person match so I can do gross deposits and gross cancels. I did that for the Fall 2001 class, the Fall 2000 class, and the Fall 2002 class up to this point. We’re trying to figure out if we’re overenrolled and need to play hardball by refusing late deposits, or whether we’ll be fine, or whether we may be low and will let some people off the waitlist.
And I updated my spreadsheet showing which colleges within the university were still admitting a few students. Which got a few of them in trouble, I think. LOL
That’s what I did for a 3 pm meeting.
